Facts about Dharma

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Calico Or Dilute Calico
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • Hair: Short
Dharma's owner died, leaving her homeless. She's a great lap kitty and enjoys her people. She would prefer a home without small children or other cats, but has adjusted to the other cats in her foster home. She is front declawed. We believe Dharma is around 10 years old, but it is possible that she is older than that. She was recently diagnosed with a thyroid imbalance so she is on thyroid meds now and her thyroid levels are back to normal. She will always need the meds, but they are inexpensive and Safe Home Rescue will assist with the cost of the meds if our vet is used. The adoption fee for cats over 1 year is $40, which includes spay/neuter, distemper & rabies vaccinations, deworming, FELV testing, and microchip.
